Abstract


INTRODUCTION:-

Gall bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer involving the gastrointestinal tract, but it is the most common malignant tumour of the biliary tract worldwide. As the disease clinically resembles benign gall-bladder disease, it is detected late in its course. Primary carcinoma of the gallbladder is an unexpected histopathological finding in 1-3% of the resected specimens after elective cholecystectomy for presumably benign gallbladder disease.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:-

200 patients with cholelithiasis diagnosed by USG who underwent cholecystectomy are enrolled in the study (Jan2017 to Nov2019).

RESULTS:-

In our study, all 200 patients with cholelithiasis underwent cholecystectomy .5 cases (2.5%) were diagnosed with CaGB. Among these 5,3 (60%) were females and 2(40%) were males. Among these 5,3 (60%) were from urban areas and 2 (40%) were from rural areas.

CONCLUSION:-

No clinical. biochemical and radiologic parameters was suggestive of CaGB in patients who underwent cholecystectomy for chronic cholecystitis. Suspicion of incidental CaGB should be borne in mind. Female and urban population with chronic cholecystitis are more prone to CaGB.
